MAWTT November Challenge. . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope all ticketys are boo?

Its time for another challenge for Team A over at MAWTT and the lovely Christine has chosen the theme of . . . . . . . . . .

Anything goes with Christmas

Now, it was probably just as well as I had only made one Christmas card and was all behind (in more ways than one lol!!!)

I hope that you can take a moment to pop over and see what we have created for inspiration and even better if you take the plunge and enter the challenge.

Cream and brown card
Gold mirror and vintage gold card
First Edition Gilded Winter 8x8 paper
Sue Wilson Snowflake Corner, Border and Tag die
Sue Wilson Christmas Tree Greetings
Dovecraft snowflake stamp
Gold mica
Gold ribbons
Teeny gold bling

I cut the tree die out of brown, vintage gold and gold mirror card and stuck them together, staggered to give a depth/shadow effect.
And much as I adore First Edition papers, I just felt this one needed a bit of a bling up so that's why I added mica snowflakes.
The card measures 7x7 and is not too deep so its ok for posting.

I hope that you can visit MAWTT and join in.

Still taking things a day at a time but did manage to venture out for an early dinner with Mr D to a local hostelry yesterday.

Best be off to crack on with these Christmas cards.

  1. Really enjoy this card - makes a change from black and gold. I've got this die so will probably be having a play today. With a disabled husband, a daughter with a broken leg giving me extra kids and dogs in the house and a builder building my new kitchen I am way behind this Christmas so your lovely idea is very welcome! Keep well and take care of yourself! xx

  2. Hi Ang, what a lovely card, the die looks beautiful staggered with the different colours. Hope the Christmas cards are going well, I need to get going with mine. Take care. Bx

  3. Very stylish. I have this border die and not used it so will adapt with other bits I've got.
